M-G girls tennis clinches CIC-title share

BY SCOTT HUNT - shunt@chronicle-tribune.com

After positioning itself to share the Central Indiana Conference girls tennis championship with a dramatic, 3-2 win over Mississinewa, Madison-Grant would need no late heroics in claiming that share Monday evening against Elwood.

The Argylls dropped just two games in sweeping all three singles matches and quickly dispatched the Panthers, 5-0 to share the CIC title with Alexandria and Ole Miss.

Sadie Wilson earned a 6-1, 6-1 win at No. 1 singles for M-G while Kasey Cleaver (No. 2) and Brenna Miller (No. 3) won matches, 6-0, 6-0.

The Argylls needed a bit more time in doubles matches but Kayla Comer and Brooke Butcher took a 6-3, 6-1 win at No. 1 with Sidney Presnall and Carley Bramel capturing the No. 2 spot, 6-4, 6-2.

Madison-Grant (14-6) will meet Blackford in a semifinal of the Marion Sectional at 5 p.m. on Wednesday. The host-Giants and Mississinewa square off in the other semifinal at 5 p.m.

College softball

Hope International 5, Taylor 0

Taylor Wilson’s single leading off the top of the second inning was the lone hit for the Taylor softball team on Monday as the Trojans fell to Hope International (California) in the opening game of the NAIA National tournament in Corban, Oregon.

The Trojans had just three base runners in the contest as Maddi Evans and Erin Cozad each drew a walk.

Hope International pitcher Taylor Pierce pitched all seven innings and finished with 10 strikeouts.    

Taylor will face Marymount California in an elimination game today at 1:30 p.m.

Boys golf

Giants ninth at NCC

Jaydin Bell shot 110 to lead Marion’s scoring in the North Central Conference boys golf championship on Monday morning at Pebble Brook Golf Course in Noblesville. Kollin Ashbrooke added 118 and Deonte Reed had 130.

Harrison (West Lafayette) fired a 316 to edge Logansport (319) for the team title. Muncie Central (330) finished third, just ahead of McCutcheon (332).

The Giants played with just the three players and didn’t record a team score. Three other Marion golfers were taking AP exams and couldn’t attend.

Harrison’s Nic Hoffman shot a one-under par 69 to easily win individual medalist by seven shots over the field.
